Home Buying And Checking For Asbestos
Updated: Jul 20
Did you know that most homes do not include asbestos inspections? There currently isn’t a law set in place to check for asbestos upon purchasing a new property.
Hiring For And Asbestos Inspection
Only asbestos abatement specialists can check your new home for asbestos. Asbestos fibers are strong, durable, resist heat, acids, and friction, and are practically indestructible. Asbestos fibers have a tendency to break up easily in smaller and smaller microscopic tiny particles that simply float in air and stick to clothes and other surfaces. Because of these properties, asbestos was often combined with other materials for use in construction
Why It’s Important
When you buy a home or property without having an asbestos abatement professional test it first, you leave future problems that will cost you money and your health. If you do find that asbestos is present, you can ask your seller to have the asbestos removed or lower the selling price.
